Outlook Connector from within Windows Live Essentials (Wave 3) Beta has some issue(s) regarding showing notifications (alerts) for all day appointments within one’s Windows Live Calendar:
- When the all day appointment alert is displayed and the user uses Dismiss button to close the alert, Outlook Connector updates the appointment on the server and it becomes a standard (not all day) appointment, starting at 0:00 on the day, and finishing at 0:00 on the next day. This breaks the way the alert is displayed on Windows Live Calendar (http://Calendar.Live.com) as now the time (0:00) will be shown, and it wouldn’t be necessary.
- Besides this, the alert is shown again, even after being dismissed by the user, whenever the user clicks Send/Receive button, or restarts Outlook. I think this bug may be related to the first issue because maybe when the alert is dismissed, the old appointment is deleted and a new one is created instead (therefore losing the “all day” setting) and then a new alert will be generated as it’s a “different” appointment.
Hopefully these bugs will be resolved in the Windows Live Wave 3 final release (which is to be delivered soon).
